Lillie 2.0

WHAT a car to be a first brand new vehicle for local resident, Sallie Murphy. The Suzuki Vitara RT-S, or as Sallie calls her, Lillie 2.0, sports a powerful yet efficient 1.6L petrol engine with VVT, multimedia satellite navigation system with reversing camera and Apple CarPlay, seven airbags, ESC, ABS, EBD and BA, but perhaps her most outstanding feature are her eyelashes.

Lillie 2.0 is Sallie’s third car, and some may have noticed her former car, a 1999 Ford Laser LXi, or Lillie as Sallie called her, as it too had its eyelashes done.

Sallie said, “The reason we bought this car was the fact we really needed a family car to accommodate for our daughter, Annabelle. It’s a lot easier to get her into the car compared to the Ford…we basically had to fold her up to fit her in.

“The price, safety features, fuel economy and the features that came standard also appealed to us.

“The lashes are just me and it’s good to have a bit of a laugh.

“I decided to keep the nickname from my previous car. I called the Ford Lillie the Laser. I have Autobots on the side of the Suzuki and decided to call her Lillie 2.0 because it’s like she has ‘transformed’ into an upgraded model.”
